Practice Session

  • Lossiemouth or Spynie
  • 10am – 4.30pm

Here you have the opportunity to practice while I run my One-to-One lessons. There is plenty of space for others to practice while these lessons are happening. The rule is though that the music played depends on the couple I am working with at the time and there will be certain times when no music is being played. Please remember that this isn't a Class and there will be no tuition.

Sunday

NEW! Practice Session

  • Lossiemouth
  • 11am – 1pm

This isn't a Class and there will be no tuition. A chance to practice what you are learning in the Classes. You can also learn a lot from observing other people and watching what they are doing.

Practice sessions are always very sociable and enjoyable. Practice the steps you’ve learned in Class and meet new friends. Our more experienced dancers are always more than happy to help you if you forget something. Why not bring along a flask of coffee and some biscuits or a packed lunch? Or go out to lunch afterwards in one of the many fantastic eateries in the Lossiemouth area?
These Sunday sessions being run by Brian Watt and Kathy McGrath Gunn with support from Hakon Soreide and Amina Adamu. I won’t be attending regularly but I’ll probably come along from time to time.
